Over 30000 teachers employed by the Teachers Service Commission will smile soon after them being considered first in salary increment.
TSC boss Dr. Nancy Macharia says that B5 which is mostly for primary school teachers has been disadvantaged for many years.
Majority of teachers in this job group have been forgotten when it comes to salary increment. Their time has come to be remembered and Macharia assures them that starting next month this year, their payslips will read differently.
Teachers in job group D3 have also been forgotten for long in terms of salary increment. These are mainly Director of Studies in schools who are supposed to be promoted.
For many years the Teachers Service Commission has promised them promotion and salary increment but nothing good has been done on their side. Macharia again has regretted this and says that TSC will consider them first in salary increment. They have been told not to worry.
Macharia further says that the commission will give all teachers salary increment but these are the two groups to be considered first.
She insists that already the commission has received funds for teachers’ salary increment and that teachers should relax and wait for it to be effected.
